Lois Pantazis

 Alliance for Historic Hillsborough 

Lois Pantazis has always been devoted to helping others, first in her career as a nurse, and now as a Special Projects Volunteer for the Alliance for Historic Hillsborough. This non-profit organization promotes and publicizes the town, manages the Hillsborough Visitors Center, creates brochures and handouts, schedules tours, hosts community events, and provides educational programs. Michael Verville, her Volunteer Supervisor, calls Ms. Pantasiz “a pleasure to work with” and explains that the alliance “relies on consistent, capable volunteers.” Michael notes that “aside from assisting guests with directions and tourist information, Ms. Pantazis has during the past year organized some of the family papers, 19th century newspapers, and special collections.” Ms. Pantazis’s work means that fragile documents will be protected for many years to come and will be accessible to future researchers.  

 
Thank you, Ms. Pantazis, for your hard work and for your dedication to the town of Hillsborough!
